Publix: Gourmet food for cheap!

a

Who says you can't get gourmet food on a beans-and-rice budget?

This week at Publix, I bought goat cheese, tortellini, and arborio rice for risotto, among other items, and still saved a lot!

But I bought beans, too. I found Old El Paso black bean refried beans on the clearance shelf. I combined the clearance price with store and manufacturer's coupons to save even more!  (I also found the arborio rice there.)

And I bought my favorite item to get on sale and with coupons: toilet paper. Now we're set for a while!

Here's what I got this week:

2 Chavrie goat cheese @ $2.89 (on sale from $4.79) = $5.78

Very nice! I think I need to go to CVS today before the sale ends and use some ECBs, coupons, and some gift cards earned with points to get some more Charmin. I didn't realize I was so low.
